You know what cane great about December? Kids who celebrate the holidays are unendingly concerned about Santa. Is he watching? Is the elf on the shelf really telling Santa what we do? If your kids ever start cracking wise and call your bluff, have Santa send them a voicemail.


It doesn’t have to be Christmas related, either! Google’s Santa Tracker voicemail service has all the winter holidays listed. It also doesn’t have to be kids, but we’re all kids at heart this time of year anyway, so send messages to everyone! Parents, friends, co-workers — anyone who calls you out about Santa dropping by this season, send them a message.

It’s really easy, too. All you have to do is answer a few questions via the website, and the message pops up pretty instantly. It seems as though Santa has pre-recorded some greetings, so we can get creative with our chosen voicemail. Once completed, we have the ability to share just about any way we like, too!

If you’re pals have less-than-average names, don’t worry. Santa Tracker has all kinds of failsafe greetings and other little tweaks designed to make the voicemail happen. It’s also pretty quick, taking about five minutes per message. The website compiles the message as you answer questions, so it’s ready to send out right after you complete the questions for Santa. If anyone tries that whole “Santa doesn’t even exist” thing this year, now you have an ace in the hole.
